In a brief moment, your idea can appear complete and tangible. Then you start to concretize the idea, attempting to word it or build it, but this very act of realization will inevitably distort it.
We wish to freeze that very moment, in which an idea appears complete and tangible in all its simplicity. Bubble embodies this very wish of freezing the brief moment. A moment is such a short and abstract period in time, and because it lacks the substance to be defined, a moment is fragile.
The act of freezing the moment is then for us related to preserving the fragile.
And what is more fragile than a bubble? A bubble is a thin film of water floating in the air.
Its visual appearance is a transparent and light form covered with fluctuating colors that never quite settle. Only defined by a tenuous membrane, the bubble is easily broken, and often, it lasts only for a few seconds before it bursts and disappears.
The bubble will be a bubble that will float freely in space. It is set to create friction between the anxious expectation that it may burst any second, as bubbles usually do, and the realization that it will not. In freezing the moment, Bubble thus embodies the potential of capturing the dream of the idea, complete and tangible. And it lasts.
